coronavirus epidemic children: children important to end corona virus epidemic in US: survey – children important to end coronavirus epidemic in us says survey
A new survey conducted in the US has shown that the covid epidemic in the US will not end until children are vaccinated against the disease. The New York Times survey on Monday quoted epidemic experts as saying that the true end of the epidemic would be when at least 70 percent of Americans of all ages were vaccinated.
According to the newspaper, teenagers in the US have just started receiving the vaccine this week, and it has not yet been approved for children under 12. “Children are the key to ending the epidemic,” said David Celentano, president of epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University and one of 723 epidemiologists who participated in the survey this month.
“It seems that there is a light at the end of the tunnel,” said Gretchen Bandoli, an assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of California. He said, ‘We have the necessary equipment to get there, and it seems within reach.’ In the survey, about 85 percent of respondents said that it is likely that Americans will be able to gather safely for a barbecue on the Fourth of July this year. A slightly higher share in the survey said that it is likely that soon the schools will be fully open, and families will be able to gather safely indoors for the winter holidays.
